Rajma Masala - Simple Homestyle Rajma Masala - Side Dish for Chapathi, Nann and Jeera Rice

Rajma masala - simple and filling home style gravy with rajma. Most gravy recipes would include cashew or fresh cream, but I always like side dishes with simple ingredients which are easy to digest without any burning sensation in the stomach.  Compared with many gravies, this rajma masala does seem like the healthy option with minimal fat and masalas. By preparing favourite curries at home, you can easily reduce calories, fat and artificial flavours. The base gravy made with onion and tomato paste won't be as creamy as the restaurant style gravies, but it will have more delicate flavour and it is much healthier. To make the base masala paste, just grind the onions and tomatoes separately in a mixer jar. As I mentioned earlier in my previous gravy posts, try to use fresh ginger garlic paste. This fresh paste made with onions, tomatoes make a fantastic base to gravies with a bit of sweetness. I have used chana masala powder in this recipe instead of garamasala powder in this recipe

Tomato Rava Upma - Thakkali Rava Bath - Easy Tiffin Recipes

A simple tiffin that is both delicious and rich and comes together in just 15 minutes with rava. When I have a lot of tomatoes, I always keep preparing chutney or dosa varieties with tomatoes.  Most of us add the roasted rava in the hot water that generates uniform heat which produces excellent results. After tasting rava kichadi in a restaurant, I did a few experiments to bring the glossy texture which will be perfect for 3 to 5 hours. In this method the rava is roasted along with traditional tempering made with onions and tomatoes and then hot water is added. This method prevents the formation of lumps and tastes good even after 3 hours. Now let's see how to prepare this Delicious Tomato Rava Bath.

A tasty and satisfying kuzhambu using radish. There are many recipes for karakuzhambu, but it's basically prepared with onions, garlic and tamarind.

You can make this kara kuzhambu in different ways and today this is the method I have tried by assuming the flavours and taste..
